CSGO IEM Cologne 2022: MOUZ vs Astralis | 15 July, 9:30 PM (PST)

Recommended Posts


To advance to the IEM Cologne 2022 playoffs, MOUZ had to end true curse. The German team has never advanced to the championship's deciding round during the Global Offensive era in a city whose name began with the letter K. 

In an interview conducted before to the commencement of the $1 million competition, Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen, coach of the European team, mentioned the fate. The organization had been plagued by this calamity for about ten years, traveling from Katowice via Kraków and ending up in Cologne or Köln as it is known in German. 

But the classification was earned after a lot of effort. After losing to Natus Vincere in the main phase opener, the European team had to travel through Heroic, Vitality, and Ninjas in Pajamas to get a passport stamp for the LANXESS Arena. 

Prior to 2019, when Finn "karrigan" Andersen took over as team captain, the greatest finish the European rats have ever had in one of the most illustrious CS:GO tournaments in the world was a 7th or 8th place finish. 

Now that the competition is at its most crucial point, MOUZ will have the opportunity to compete on the LANXESS Arena stage in front of the German public, who has already sold out of tickets and has promised to fill the "Cathedral of Counter-Strike." 

By the way, the team led by the Australian Christopher "dexter" Nong will be back in action on Friday, May 15, at 9:30 PM when they take on the Danes from Astralis in the first of the quarterfinal matches of IEM Cologne 2022.
